Promotion of neurite outgrowth and protective effect of erythropoietin on the retinal neurons of rats


To clarify the effect of erythropoietin (EPO) on neurite outgrowth of the cultured retinal neurocytes, and investigate whether EPO might potentially be beneficial in protecting cultured retinal neurocytes suffering from glutamate-induced cytotoxity. After the retinal neurocytes were cultured for 48 hours, the culture media was replaced with serum-free media… (More)
